Meet your team:

 

The Intelligent Enterprise Solutions (IES) department is responsible for evolving SAP’s IT strategy and executing on it. We are applying our expertise in technology and business processes by driving the internal adoption of standard applications that support end-users in the execution and re-engineering of their processes in all lines of business, always putting a strong focus on end-user centricity. It is our objective to accelerate co-innovation with development and extend the use of SAP standard products within SAP, shifting the focus from maintaining a heavily customized environment to optimizing our processes on top of standard services. By combining technological understanding with business know how and using our own innovative solutions as earliest adopter, we ensure zero distance between business and technology and act as ultimate proof point in SAP’s transition to a cloud company.

Within the IES, the IE BS Solution Management team is responsible for both, laying the E2E foundation across all IE Business Solutions as well as enabling continuous integration of SAP’s acquired cloud lines of business.
